Jacob Hashimoto: A Fractured Giant
21 January 2023 - 21 January 2024
The Fractured Giant is a site-specific installation by Jacob Hashimoto in BAM’s Sculpture Court and marks his first solo museum exhibition in Idaho. Combining traditional kite- and pattern-making techniques, printmaking, and collage into a sculptural environment, the artist has created an immersive installation with thousands of thin, hand-made papers. Building and layering his materials within the architecture of the space, the artist composes a visually stunning landscape made completely by hand.
Jacob Hashimoto was born in Greeley, Colorado in 1973 and grew up in Walla Walla, Washington. He is a graduate of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He lives and works in Ossining, New York. Hashimoto’s artworks have been featured in museum exhibitions internationally, including at MOCA Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles, Museum of Contemporary Art (MACRO) in Rome, Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) in California, Aaltonen Museum of Art in Finland, and the Crow Museum of Asian Art in Texas.
This installation is complemented by the exhibition Jacob Hashimoto: Fractured Giants, which features drawings, prints, and wall sculptures by the artist.
